Kennewick police nabbed two young males after they allegedly tried to break into a home just before 9 p.m. Monday on the 6900 block of West Second Avenue.
Officers responded to a report of the break-in and upon their arrival, two males fled over fences. The officer told the suspects to stop but they ran. The K9 officer then was called to track them. Kennewick police dog Axel tracked and found both suspects: One hiding in a garbage can in a nearby front yard, and the other under a tree in a nearby backyard.
Both suspects have a criminal history. One was an offender for theft, assault and possessions of marijuana, and the other had several assaults, malicious mischief, trespasses and graffiti charges, police said.
The juvenile males admitted to trying to break into the home through the back windows after they had rang the doorbell and no one answered it, police said. They said they wanted to break in to steal items, and admitted to recently trying to obtain a firearm.
